Stainless Steel Vietnamese Café-style Filter

The gravity insert filter kit used in Trung Nguyen coffeeshops in Vietnam for Cà phê sua dá (or Cafe sua da). The flavor obtained from these small and inexpensive brewers is incomparable. No paper filters needed, no big machine setup or cleaning needed to brew a simple cup of delicious coffee.

The new stainless steel version has a heavier insert and brews wonderfully. Note: the screw-down style of filter is Chinese-style, but some users prefer it for its finer control. These filters are solidly built and brew a very nice cup of coffee. The Stainless Steel construction lasts for years and stays spotless.

Please keep in mind that the original-size filters brew a single cup of coffee in traditional volume, about 6 ounces of intense brew, generally expected to be sipped. Those are not mug-volume or large quantity brewers. To brew more coffee, use more than one filter or try our large-sized filters. Also see our French Coffee Press or Tea/Coffee Pot brewers.

The 15oz filter is big enough to fill a TALL travel mug with STRONG coffee. That'll get you through your morning commute! You can use it to brew a whole pitcher of iced coffee, too. Simply place it on top of a carafe (preferably insulated) filled with ice and let the brewing coffee drip into the ice. Check out the photos for a general idea of the right size of carafe and amount of ice--it's more an art than a science.
